Happy birthday Granny
Today is my grannies 95th birthday - what a special lady she is.
First I have a card for my niece, she will be 13 on Wednesday.
I created the shaped pocket on the front by cutting out a Nestability shape and then trimming it in half before running it through the cuttlebug for an embossed texture. I used two shades of ink to add extra detailing to the embossing.
The pocket in the middle of the card is to hold an itunes gift card. I bought Katie a beautiful manicure and pedicure set as she is really looking after her hands and nails and is turning into quite a girlie girl, but she also loves her ipod touch and let's face it, the gift cards are a little uninspiring.
And so on to Grannie's card.
Inspired by Tim Holtz and his 12 tags of christmas, I wanted to create a 'scroll' as a background behind the sentiment
Finally a few thankyous - to Margaret who made me a gorgeous card - thankyou so much - I love it and to Sara for the magazine , to Anita and Nicki for my daily 'happy' texts, to Neil for looking after me this last week and to Dad for manning the shop by himself for the last 6 days xxx
